Wonderfully simple. Deceptively complex

i’ve owned this game since it was released. Starbucks had a promotion for it to download free. it’s gone on so many flights and road trips, as well as just helped me relax laying in bed. the puzzles are make my brain happy. i typically solve the more complex within about 4 or 5 tries. if i find one that’s especially challenging, i step away for a bit, then return with fresh eyes to solve it immediately. the sounds are soothing. currently on my fourth play through, on stages G H I. i will go about 6mo to a year between play through a so as to not always be just immediately repeating the puzzles. usually enough time to forget them and replay them.

thanks for such a wonderful distraction.

Best Game

This is such a relaxing yet fun game. It challenges you after a certain amount of levels, but it’s a puzzle worth playing. After mastering levels, you end up being able to change the game skin- and they’re such pretty colors!

I want to thank whoever invented this game. I’ve had to play the game all over again after switching phones, but it’s been a pleasure every time. After having this phone for the past couple of years, I finally reached 999 points. It was a very sweet “thank you for playing”. So bittersweet; but even though I won’t make it to 1,000 points, I’ll still be playing the daily levels.
And that’s the other thing! Once you’ve finished all of the levels, there are daily games whose difficulty changes depending on the day of the week.

I absolutely cherish this game. It honestly calms my anxiety and is a great distraction from the stressors of life. To say I’d highly recommend this game is an understatement. It’s provided countless moments of entertainment and joy for me. Thank you to those who made this game. It’s an absolute hidden gem and a treasure.

A Classic!

Thanks for the compatibility update! I've owned and still continue to play Lyne over the nearly 4 years since it was introduced in the App Store.

Like all the better puzzle games, at first glance Lyne seems deceptively simple but your soon discover that it can be mentally challenging despite it's simplicity of play. It will have your thinking cap going full blast with the enjoyment it provides from solving the numerous puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty. If you don't have Lyne on your iOS device, I strongly recommend you download it. In my opinion, it should be ranked as a "Classic" of it's genre on the App Store.
